The walk with a park ranger would be a wonderful way to see and learn. But if you are on your own, there is a senior discount. I also picked up a $2 off coupon which worked. The visit to church included the Dough house...More

Picturesque church. Knowledgeable guide inside the church. Lovely modern memorial to our war dead. Chocolate demonstration & samples a must. Recitation of the Midnight Ride poem, by "Henry Wadsworth Longfellow." The statue of Revere on his horse opposite the back of the church is not...More

I paid extra to take the trip up the steeple. DO IT! Please sit in a box and listen to the docent because there are several interesting facts. Please be respectful as it is a church. Ask questions and listen to the answers. Do not...More

Love the history of Boston and this is no exception. Definitely take an Uber here, streets are so narrow and parking is nonexistent. The church is great.

Even if you aren't a history buff, I think you will enjoy this I like history but my friend doesn't. After we left, she even said she enjoyed it. It doesn't take long, but, it is definitely worth it.

We absolutely LOVED seeing these historical sites. Beware: There is some construction around the Paul Revere Statue which makes it hard to get a really good view of the statue!

We did not do the guided tour which lets you go up part way into the steeple but instead did the self guided tour. That did include a presentation which was very interesting. The way the pews are set gives you insight as to to...More

I can't speak to the normal tour, but the behind the scenes was pretty good. It was very interesting and was especially cool seeing the crypt below the church. The tour covered information about the church itself, but it is historic because of how the...More

This site offers so much more than I anticipated. Of course the inside of the church is interesting to see. Except when they are holding services, you can walk around inside the building, and there are guides on hand to answer questions. We paid $2...More

North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church

The Freedom Trail is 2.5 miles and if you stop at each of the historic sites to see them it takes 5-6 hours. The Old North Church can be seen in a self guided tour in 15-20 minutes. They do have a guided crypt and bell... More
